As we previously reported, the Wizards intend to keep Bertans long-term. Washington would like to re-sign the stretch four, who they believe will add spacing to the John Wall–Bradley Beal duo on the court.
There were reports that the Wizards wanted two first-round picks if they were to part with Bertans, who will be a free agent after the season. Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe (Twitter link) hears that two first-round picks may not have even been enough to pry the forward from Washington. Boston was uninterested in paying that price tag anyway, the scribe adds.
Bertans has spoken openly about how he likes the Wizards’ organization. The feeling is mutual and it would be shocking if he plays anywhere other than Washington next season.
